instead of condemning their actions. >> romney is basing that off of a statement from the u.s. embassy in cairo saying it does not support the criticism of muslims' religious beliefs. not only was that statement never approved by washington, it was also issued four hours before the attacks in an effort to calm the situation down. president obama, in fact, did condemn the attacks and said he is shocked romney would play politics during a time the united states is still mourning the loss of four of its diplomats. romney is now seeing a big backlash from those statements, even from conservatives but a few are actually taking his side. former secretary of state henry kissinger says he can understand romney's severe reaction to the violence. jim demint called romney absolutely right on libya and senator jon kyl said the u.s. embassy's response is the same as blaming a rape victim and then asking them for an apology. more bill press is coming up live after the break. we're live in chat, current.com/billpress. we have a

member myself, when you get into a joint setting yeah, go, u.s. but then depending on the service you're in, you're in the air force and the leader happens to be a marine, well then you start taking on the marine corps but you're still supporting. that's the way males are. >> bill: why don't they see obama as a male leader? >> caller: but they see him as a black male leader. romney as the white male leader. if it was obama against a woman they would probably line up with obama. >> bill: yeah. i guess that's as easy an explanation as any regis i guess. i think it is wrongheaded. it certainly doesn't go very deep in terms of an important decision as who's going to be the next president of the united states. all right, well joey's got the answer. he's from chicago. he'll know the answer. good morning. >> caller: i'll tell you exactly what it is. white males think they're the biggest, baddest toughest things around but inside, they're just afraid. and that's what it is. >> bill: what are they afraid of? >> caller: i d

, anger anger; that the world is not the world of the 50s. it isn't. we wish it was. and actually the 50s wasn't so great for a lot of people. >> bill: right. >> so you saw itself values start connecting that's ultimately what made america the country it is right now, and so between julian castro and michelle obama that's what you saw, and you saw it without the anger and vitrial. >> bill: yeah and they talked about their life experiences, julian having his mother there. and what he learned from his mother and grandmother, and michelle obama what she learned from her father and barack obama what he learned from his mother and grandmother, and that drives their policies so she was able to connect, right, their program, their policies with where they are coming from. >> exactly. and it was both -- and this gets lost sometimes, it was both individual action. democrats believe in the power of individuals, of innovation of entrepreneurship, but it was how the government can help make it fair because everyone is not born to borrow ann richard's old term with a silver spoon
on the ground. we had 40,000 activists and leaders and volunteers on the ground in 2008. s ofafscme is going to have 80,000 boots on the ground this year. the afl-cio has a new program worker's voice. we'll have 400,000 union members that are going to be working in their communities across this country. not only knocking on union doors and union households but knocking on every single household in our communities to get the word out. >> bill: you heard it. that's the ground force president obama needs. it will be providing lee saunders great work, great leadership. thank you for stopping by today. >> enjoyed being here. >> bill: thanks for being such a strong supporter of the show from the beginning. lee saunders here. my union brother. we'll be right back here on the "full court press" talking with stephanie from emily's list. 50% of the delegates here. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." and social media, providing unsurpassed insight into the most buzz worthy tweets, posts and pontifications, from the entire social
in november. i said come on, this election is six weeks away. >> he said don't b. s. me, we all know -- "we all know obama's going to win in november." wow. so i assured him that conversation would be off the record. now i just told you all about it but i didn't tell you his name because it would make news. big news if i revealed his name. and so there is this feeling -- and you understand where it could be coming from. yesterday the latest battleground poll shows nationwide president obama up over mitt romney by 50% to 47%. but more importantly if you look at the battleground states, the latest battleground poll shows president obama up over romney in virginia by 8 points, up in ohio by 5 points, up in florida by 5 points, up in iowa by 5 points. up in nevada by 5 points. i was looking at some others this morning here, enough, just up by 1 point. colorado up by 2.3 points. so it's looking pretty good. here's another indication in the latest battleground poll. this was conducted by politico and paid for by politico, spo
on "the tonight show" back in the 1950s and hosted his own andy williams show and many holiday staples earned five grammy nominations and numerous gold and platinum albums. >> bill: never one of my favorite performers but one of the old time crooners, the perry como andy williams. >> i know it is officially christmas when i hear andy am whats "it's the most wonderful time of the year." that's the one thing i know and love. >> bill: you'll still hear it. >> a school founded by thomas jefferson has been named the top party school in the country by playboy. university of virginia -- >> bill: whoa! >> the top spot on the poll. the magazine says the school knows a thing or two about raising a glass but uva not happy with that honor. they immediately released a statement yesterday -- far more important that they be known for their academic achievement not their party atmosphere. also on the playboy party list, usc and the universities of florida, texas and wisconsin. >> bill: laura ingraham went to the university of vir
everything from traveling overseas to run educational programs in u.s. embassies. >> bill: that's a great idea. sort of like the ping-pong philosophy. >> yeah. >> a sad weekend at buckingham palace, coregy has passed away. she still has two other dogs willow and holly, and they are old but doing okay. >> bill: and she has already been offered a new corgie puppy by the guy who helped her train them. >> right. >> bill: secretary of labor will be joining us by phone at the half hour. the jobs report coming out friday, 96,000 new jobs -- that's 96,000 new public sector jobs coming out -- >> actually it is net new jobs. >> bill: a bit of a damper? >> it was a disappointment. and the day before we had this great report by a private company that said that the private sector had added 201,000. >> bill: i saw that. >> what you have to keep in mind the private sector is doing well, but you have this austerity kick in state and local governments, what this plan shows is the romney and ryan plan we're going to cut back spending. and that is exactly what we don't need because rig
about the financial house of the u.s. government which is in total disorder and disarray and the solutions they came up with over three and a half years and the republicans are participants in this completely but the president has to lead, not just democrats but the whole country including republicans is to postpone all of the hard spending and taxing decisions to 2013. the mess that has been debated most intensely last year and continues into this year, we're going to be back in it in the next two or three months where the congress is going to have to find some way to authorize more spending and more borrowing which is the key. because we're spending $1 trillion more each year than we actually take in as a government. >> bill: no doubt about it. one surprise for some people is obviously a lot of the book -- most of it is talking about how obama's trying to work things out with republicans unable to do so. and the one person who comes across as willing to compromise but maybe not being able to is john boehne
't agree with this. linda mcmahon hope she loses no, i don't agree with him. yesterday, another u.s. senator republican senator dean heller came out from nevada and said mitt romney was wrong with his vision of america and his disdain for 50% almost of americans. so that's the first point. again how wrong mitt romney is on the facts. i know you want to talk about that. 1-866-55-press. our toll free number. the second point is how lame -- and this surprises me. how lame the response of the romney campaign is. look, they announced this week would be a whole new start to the campaign. a whole new beginning. they're going to have new ads they were going to have a new message. they were going to have new life in the campaign. redirection of the campaign. well, as it happened, they spent the last -- all this week just responding to this video. but in the lamest possible way. so let's follow the progression. we'll bring you up to date here. first it was remember -- i don't back away from those remarks. i stand by those rema

an i.d. we're not going to get 800,000 new i.d.s issued between now and then. everything that goes into finding the documents where you're working two jobs, it won't happen. it will suppress the vote. in florida you got tens of thousands -- some say hundreds of thousands of formerly incarcerated people. these are folks like martha stewart, tim allen folks who made a big mistake. they did their time. they're back out. they're being productive. they have a right to vote and in 2008, they could vote. why? because jeb bush and charlie crist reenfranchised formerly incarcerated people. apparently they didn't like the way that worked and he redisenfranchised them and took the votes away from hundreds of thousands of people who could vote in 2008. so those two states for sure. that's just where they're using the law to suppress the vote. you throw in all of the other tactics, yes, it will be a big problem across the country. >> bill: just gotta work that much harder. >> we've gotta search the vote. >> bill: n
